One of the best things about triathlon is the variety our sport offers. Different parts of our event favour different athletes, and training across three sports takes a much lighter toll on our bodies. But triathlon training also means we’re ready for anything, so that’s what we want to celebrate in our latest challenge.
Welcome to OFF-tober!!
We’re keeping this challenge pretty simple:
– use your triathlon fitness to enjoy something that isn’t part of a standard triathlon.
– share the picture or story with us via social media or e-mail
– that’s it… you’re entered into the weekly draws for prizes
What kind of activities are we looking for? Anything. Only pool swims and rides or runs on pavement will be excluded. Lake swims may be part of a standard triathlon too, but there are much easier ways to enter than hopping into a lake in October, so we’ll let that one slide.
Get out there and enjoy your triathlon off-season. Hike, climb or paddle. Try a new sport and annoy friends by running constantly (golfers hate this, but it sure does liven things up!) You can even ride or run some new trails. It all counts!
Play with your fitness, then share your story and we’ll enter you for draws to win $50 gift cards from our sponsors or free access to other TriMB events and programs.
Thank you to everyone for your patience as we worked to set up the Kids Program for the Fall & Winter sessions this year.
Our Fall & Winter workouts will take place on Saturdays this year – from 9:00 to 11:00 am.
The workouts will focus on run/fitness for the first hour and swimming for the second hour. The first workout is scheduled for Saturday, October 2nd.
Annika Niblock will be our head coach for the program this winter. Annika is a graduate of the TriMB Youth & MTC Programs, who is currently pursuing a degree in Environmental Studies at U of M and has also been working through her coaching certifications. She’d intended to coach one of our regional teams during the 2020 Manitoba Summer Games and is keen to help a next generation of athletes fall in love with triathlon by sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for our sport.
The City of Winnipeg is still not able to confirm use of the Pan Am track for indoor run workouts, but we have confirmed our pool time at the facility (secured with Swim Manitoba). As such, our October workouts will start at the outdoor Grant Park Track, which is in the field next to the Pan Am Pool main entrance, before moving indoors to the pool for the second hour of each session… at least for the first weeks.
Because of this, the program registration is limited to October only right now. We’ll hope to move to the indoor track later this month and once that is confirmed, we’ll add an additional registration option for workouts from November through to Spring.
There are five workouts scheduled for October (2nd to 30th), with a cost of $25 – which has been reduced to compensate for the uncertainty and because we know it may not be possible for participants to attend all workouts due to the late notice.
Registration is limited to 12 athletes.
One additional note – there is a question in the registration about whether or not the adult dropping your child off at workouts is able to provide proof of vaccination. In support of Public Health Orders Section 14(1), the Pan Am Pool can only allow facility access to fully vaccinated adults – children are welcome to use the facility and engage in sport regardless of their vaccination status or that of their parents, but drop-offs and pick-ups will require a bit more planning.
The AGM is scheduled for Wednesday, October 20th, 2021 from 7:30 pm.
